    Key Features. One of the areas on Jeeps that always get beat up is the recessed part of the door under the handles. Fingernails, keys, and whatever else is constantly hitting the paint, resulting in a look that's less than stellar. These Rugged Ridge Door Handle Recess Guards fix the problem by covering up any present damage and preventing more in the future. They're made to match the black plastic door handles, so they compliment the look of your rig and make it appear even more customized. Installation is simple and the material is durable.

    Construction. Constructed out of high-quality ABS plastic, these Door Handle Recess Guards are UV treated so they won't easily fade or crack from sitting in the sun. Like the other plastic bits on your Jeep, the clean up nice and resist scratching. A double-sided tape is included for installation, with automotive-grade adhesive that's designed to hold up under constant exporsure to extreme temperatures and dust.

    Installation. This is one of the easiest modifications for a Jeep. There are absolutely no tools needed, but you do have to clean the area around the handles, plus all five exterior handles extremely well. If you don't get all the grime off the paint, plus dry everything super well, the included tape might not work right, so this is critical. You should dry fit each guard before actually trying to install it, just so you're familiar with how to get them behind the handles and how they fit in the recessses. Once you do peel off the protective film from the double-sided tape, press the guards against the doors for about a minute for maximum adhesion, then be cautious with the guards for about 24 hours. After that, you shouldn't have to worry.

    Application. Rugged Ridge makes these Door Handle Recess Guards to fit perfectly on all 2007-2018 Jeep Wranglers and Wrangler Unlimiteds.

    I am looking for only Matte Black or the powder black finish to match the other modifications to my Jeep. Are these the shiny plastic black or the matte black?

      Great addition to guard against scratches

      I purchased a set of these recess guards on a whim and i am very glad that I did. The fit is perfect, installation is a breeze, and they add a very nice finishing look on the doors. I am glad that they are a matte finish, due to that fact that I am going for a more matte look with my other accessories. For the price, they are a great addition to guard against accidental fingernail or key scrapes when opeing the doors.

      Great product

      Great product that adds to protecting the finish, great price and looks great too. Very easy to install, just need to make sure it’s all lined up as perfect as possible before pressing against the body panels. Once it’s on, it is on - so take your time.

      This was a great product, very easy to install and very clean look. It adds a lot to the jeep! I was on the fence on if I would like them or not, but after I have seen them on my jeep, I absolutely love them.

      Protection

      They look and function well, I think if the double sided tape was thinner they would fit better.

      Should be standard item on Jeeps.

      Excellent addition but should be standard item on a jeep to protect the paint. Looks great, clean finished look. Very easy to install. Would purchase again. Very reasonable in price.

      Recess Guards

      They did not take long at all to put on after you aligned them to fit just right. They are simple and subtle but add a nice touch.

      Cheap protection from scratches.

      One of the first thing we have put on our jeeps so far. Cheap protection against scratching from nails, rings, keys etc. Also nice contrasting detail on doors. Easy install but take your time, 3M tape is extremely sticky.
